FROM PLASTIC FANTASTIC TO IKEA’S BIGGEST THREAT.
After decades of discount prices & package deals, Fantastic Furniture had a problem with 64% of consumers seeing them as poor quality and cheap. Even their own customers referred to them as ‘plastic fantastic’.
We needed to stop Aussies from being ashamed of buying Fantastic Furniture.
We’ve contributed to considerable businesses growth in our 5 year tenure, taking Fantastic from a sales target of $415 mil per year to $650 mil in 2022.

AN ENDURING BRAND PLATFORM TO SHARE ‘FANTASTIC’ STORIES.
Once Fantastic Furniture leaves the store, it’s no longer just furniture.
When you look past the wood, foam and fabric you’ll see it’s this furniture that enables all the little life moments that make our homes so special to happen. It becomes a ‘fantastic’ story in our homes.
‘Find Your Fantastic’ is a 5 year old brand platform that celebrates relatable stories of home enrichment made possible by Fantastic Furniture & inspires others to do the same.
AN EFFIE AWARD WINNING BRAND CAMPAIGN THAT SHOWS VALUE FOR MONEY IS A BEAUTIFUL THING.
Our brand campaign, ‘When It Feels Like Home, You Feel Like You’ became a statement of truth proving that with everyday low-prices and on-style furniture, Fantastic Furniture can help to enrich our homes by allowing life’s precious moments to play out.
The campaign invited the audience to quietly observe real and unguarded moments of comfort, humour and honesty, all set to the backdrop of Fantastic Furniture.
COMBINING CREATIVE, MEDIA AND PRODUCTION TO CREATE RELEVANCE AND ATTENTION AT SCALE.
We combined customer data with creativity and production thinking to develop 22 relatable scenarios across 3 audience skews, brought to life in 70 pieces of channel perfect creative which helped minimise programmatic fatigue and keep audiences engaged.
PRODUCT CAMPAIGNS DRIVING REASONS TO BELIEVE.
Fantastic Furniture was born in Sydney’s west with a belief in giving all Australian’s the opportunity to purchase affordable and stylish furniture at a ‘Fantastic’ price.
The ‘Aussie made’ message continues Fantastic’s journey to improve perceptions of quality and justify necessary price increases caused by inflation.
This tactical campaign celebrates Fantastic Furniture’s Australian-made story, showing how buying Aussie-made Fantastic feels as comfortable as their furniture.
TACTICAL CAMPAIGNS TO DRIVE EARNED MEDIA ATTENTION.
Like Getting Aussie’s to trade in an scary sofa for a fantastic one.
There’s nothing scarier than a ratty old sofa that someone has kept for way too long. Stained, saggy and definitely seen better days.
We’ve all got a story of a scary sofa or know someone who has one. So for Halloween we set out to find Australia’s scariest sofa stories and turn them into Fantastic ones.
Scary Sofa Swap is a tactical integrated campaign to drive sofa sales for Fantastic Furniture. The campaign activated through PR, social, content and media partnerships with KIIS and Spotify.
PULLING THE BRAND PLATFORM AND DISTINCTIVE ASSETS INTO RETAIL.
‘Find Your Fantastic’ is used as a call to action during key sale periods and with other initiatives targeting key occasions throughout the calendar year.
